As a result of this transfer, and for the following 300 years, the Lord of Faugères was also the Lord of Lunas.
Salomon I was followed by Gaufrid (or Gaufred), who acted as Lord of Faugères, as well as representing various bishops from the region and other Lords, at the ceremony for the transfer to King LOUIS IX of all the titles of the Viscount of Béziers and of Carcassonne by Raymond Trencavel, son of the late Raymond-Roger.
Gaufrid was followed in 1282 by Guisafred of Faugères and in 1290 another Salomon. In 1346 there was yet another Salomon about whom more is known as a result of a dispute in 1359 between him and the Lunas villagers. They rebelled against a levy of taxes and rights for hunting, fishing and grazing as well as the use of river water for irrigating their crops and repairs of fortifications.
The successors of Salomon were Gevon de Faugères and Jean de Faugères.
There is no further event of note until 1459, when the feudal lordship of Lunas was divided between Arnaud and Béatrice de Faugères.
On the 24th of
November 1459, Arnaud de Faugères sold his share to Jean de Narbonne-Caylus, who
married Béatrice de Faugères in 1516 and thereby became the sole Baron of Lunas.
